Anti water fluoridation advocates have been successful in the removal of fluoride from the water supply in Dallas, Texas. The ban comes after five decades of water fluoridation, but more and more people around the world have been gathering to put a stop to the practice over the last few years.
“We don’t need it and we’d just save a million dollars that we can use for something else. We’re looking into seeing what we can do immediately so we can get those funds up from now.” – Sheffie Kadane, Dallas City Council Member
“Yeah, this is major big. I knew we would prevail. It only makes sense. We’re spending too much money on an ineffective program.” – Scott Griggs, Dallas City Council Member
The decision was made after activists continually showed up to city council meetings, providing evidence and warning them regarding the risks involved with water fluoridation. As a result, the city could save over $1 million a year that is spent on the industrial chemical, that’s right, an industrial chemical.
The substance added to our drinking water is called hydrofluorosilicic acid. It is a toxic waste substance created from the creation processes of aluminum, fertilizer, steel and nuclear industries. It’s not the natural element of fluoride, again, it’s industrial toxic waste.
For example, in the Phosphate Mining & Production Industry, much of the hydrofluorosilicic acid occurs from strip-mined rock. The rock is broken up, placed in giant vats where sulfuric acid is also added to get rid of whatever phosphate (and other contaminants) are in the rock. While the phosphate is extracted, the contaminants used to be released into the atmosphere. This was creating more pollution, and killing animal and plant life. (See video below)
Environmental regulations were put in place where pollution control devices were set up in order to capture the contaminants, like arsenic, lead, mercury, silicofluoride and more. Included in the pollution control device is hydrofluorosilicic acid, so toxic that one needs to wear a full body suit and mask to be around it. These contaminants are then taken out of the chimneys (scrubbed off with the acid) and stored in “open-air cooling lakes,” which are further exposed to airborne contaminants.
Industrial practices produce millions and millions of gallons of this liquid hazardous waste. Because it costs these corporations thousands and thousands of dollars per ton to neutralize and dispose of hydrofluorosilicic acid, they instead sell it to the population as a ‘product.’ How ridiculous is that? Hydrofluorosilicic acid is shipped to your local drinking water supplier.
“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer deaths than any other chemical. When you have power you don’t have to tell the truth. That’s a rule that’s been working in this world for generations. There are a great many people who don’t tell the truth when they are in power in administrative positions. Fluoride amounts to public murder on a grand scale. It is some of the most conclusive scientific and biological evidence that I have come across in my 50 years in the field of cancer research.” – Dr. Dean Burke, Biochemist, Former Chief Chemist at the National Cancer Institute of Health (source)
“In regard to the use of fluorosilicic acid as a source of fluoride for fluoridation, this agency regards such use as an ideal environmental solution to a long-standing problem. By recovering byproduct fluorosilicic acid from fertilizer manufacturing, water and air pollution are minimized” – Rebecca Hanmer – Former Deputy Assistant Administrator For Water, US Environmental Protection Agency (source #1) (source #2)
“If this stuff gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing.” – Dr. J. William Hirzy (2000) Senior Chemist at the US EPA Headquarters (source)
